Plant in early spring, after the threat of frost has passed. Does best in a sunny spot with good drainage. You can start several weeks earlier indoors and then transplant seedlings once they form a couple sets of true leaves. Keep soil moist until germination at which point you can reduce watering to more modest amounts. Harvest melons once they become mostly yellow, they are mostly flavorless while green.
